Come and be part of something amazing.  

The team at SCA Care believe that helping people live the life they want to lead is extremely important – everyone should have the opportunity to fulfil their potential.  Our exciting Independent Living Service has been launched to support adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs to build and maintain life skills, including domestic activities such as cooking and cleaning, as well as budgeting, shopping, seeking employment and/or further education as well as discover new social activities.

When you join our team, you’ll make a real and positive impact to the lives of the people we support in Southampton.  Working at SCA Care means that you’ll make sure that the customer, and that the care and support given is tailored to their unique and individual needs.
